This webinar will guide tax professionals and advisers on essential concepts and trends that tax staff must understand before they can effectively work on state and local sales and use tax compliance. The panel will discuss their thoughts on sales and use tax, sourcing transactions, nexus post-Wayfair, exemptions, and revenue agency administration of sales taxes.

Description

Tax staff cannot be useful and dependable in state and local sales and use tax compliance until they grasp the fundamental concepts, starting with the critical distinctions between a sales and use tax. That is only the start—tax staff must also understand the tenets of the four general types of sales taxes.

Other key challenges include the need to separate state sales tax on invoices, understand how destination and origin sourcing of transactions work, and grasp developments regarding nexus post-Wayfair and different kinds of attributional nexus.

Tax staff should understand the impact of typical state approaches to filing frequency, e-filing and e-payment, exemptions and certificates, and vendor compensation. Such fundamentals will put tax staff on the right path with sales and use tax compliance.

Listen as our panel reviews and explains the key concepts with sales and use tax in a multistate context, provides key developments regarding nexus post-Wayfair, and offers best practices in achieving and maintaining state sales and use tax compliance.
